Why do we use Emojis?

Sometimes our words could use some help from the addition of images.

Reinforce your message with images

This is also how it works with Emojis.

They reinforce the message, and in the case of clothing, the cuteness of your child.

Emojis are those little icons or smiley faces, winks, hearts of all shapes, sizes and colors that we use in WhatsApp messages, emails and social media.

You see them everywhere these days, because they improve the precision and nuance of our often super short messages.

With such short messages you often cannot convey your message well and sometimes a picture really says more than a thousand words.

Emojis are not labeled, so they have no fixed meaning in themselves. This means that you interpret them yourself, you as the sender but also the recipient!

But because they often convey an easily recognizable thought or feeling, they are usually understood in the right context as they were intended.

They help us to convey the correct tone of a message.

why do we use emojis

Emojis can be used in an infinite number of ways, but I think these are some of the most common:

  1. To lighten the mood by introducing sarcasm or humor into your message
  2. To soften a slap in a negative message
  3. To find a more comfortable way to express yourself
  4. To communicate when words fail, with extreme joy or extreme sadness

Well, a child's outfit can certainly use some of these examples I thought! For example sarcasm or humor, always cute.

And how about a way to express yourself as a child?

Why do we use Emoticons and Emojis? Science Based Facts

Before emojis, there were emoticons, facial expressions made with punctuation marks.

The first use of an emoticon online dates back to 1982. Scott Elliott Fahlman, a computer scientist at Carnegie Mellon University, suggested using “) as a joke marker in a message.

Nowadays, emoticons are very widely used and do not need too much explanation.

With the growth of social media, these pictorial representations of feelings have already earned their spurs.

However, the first emoticons appeared a year earlier, in 1981, in one of the issues of Puck magazine.

Emoticons as Typographic Art

Four faces were published in the magazine, which were intended to convey surprise, joy, indifference and melancholy.

They were called 'typographic art'.

The Emojis: Smiley Faces, Hearts and Winks were created in 1998 by Shigetaka Kurita, an engineer at the Japanese telephone company NTT Docomo.

His job was to provide a way for customers to interact with icons.

His efforts resulted in the creation of 176 icons, which he called “emojis”.

The name is derived from 2 Japanese words “e” (photo) and “moji” (character): photo character.

Today, more than 1.800 emojis exist. Emojis have evolved into characters.

You can find them in any modern means of communication, for example in apps for mobile messaging such as WhatsApp.

Reasons why we communicate with emojis and emoticons

There are cases when a picture means more than a thousand words. Emojis don't usually have labels, so their meaning is up to those who use them.

However, they often convey an easily recognizable thought or feeling so that you can understand them in context without any difficulty.

It is interesting to know that from 2015:

  • 4% of mobile users use an emoji multiple times a day
  • 5% use them several times a week
  • 9% use them several times a month
  • 5% use them several times a year
  • 6% use them once a year or less

So what do they do?

1. Increase popularity on social media

Based on an analysis of more than 31 million tweets and half a million Facebook posts, positive emoticons and emojis can act as social media status markers.

2. People respond to them like a real human face

Scientific studies reveal that when people look at a smiley face online, the same parts of the brain are activated as when looking at a real human face.

3. Can be used in business settings

Based on a study at the University of Missouri, St. Louis, the smiley faces in both work and social emails make the recipient and sender more open and they feel that the sender likes them more.

4. Softer criticism

Studies on the way people communicate in a workplace show that when negative feedback from a boss is accompanied by positive emoticons, employees don't feel very bad about the message.

5. Increase kindness and competence

A study in the field found that health and film experts looked friendlier and more capable when they communicated using emoticons.

6. Help people remember easily what they read easily

The study mentioned in point 5 also revealed that people remember what they read thanks to the help emoticons.

7. Make a workplace happier

According to a study, 152 professionals were required to read email messages with and without emoticons.

The results showed that emoticons reduced the negative impact of the messages related to the company.

8. There is a correlation between emoticons and true happiness

Based on a study, those who use emoticons experience a positive effect on personal interaction, pleasure, perceived utility and perceived information enrichment.

Now you know how important emoticons and emojis can be in reality. It is fun to watch and can also stimulate your child!

Now you probably no longer have doubts about the purchase of that shirt with an emoticon on it.
